a letter better lesson

Here's a little "Artful Lettering" picture tutorial on drawing your letters, as shown in my composition play book.  I like this cheap paper to practice hand drawn letters, try new pens, make notes and develop ideas.  






Erase all the lines and marker color into the page.  I use this play journal instead of scratch paper, it's a $1 book of scratch doodles and letter practice.  After practicing, i'm confident to go into one of the "big girl journals", LOL!! 

Be on the lookout for my "Artful Letter Play" workshops in 2012.  I've got some secrets that i can't wait to share and there are lots of new things coming….

  4. Wow--seems more doable even for a hack like me. I guess I'm surprised you practice--I figured you could do all your awesome lettering naturally from the get go. Thanks Joanne!!

  7. Thanks for the helpful tips.

    Do you use just a single page/thickness of paper for your designs? Don't your markers bleed through? Maybe the paper in your books is a little sturdier than in mine. Any tips on this would be appreciated.
